I am over half way through the Ultimate Reset!!!!!!
You won’t believe something I’ve decided since about day 7…..drinking coffee MIGHT be a thing of the past for me!!??!! I know. I’m like significantly known for being everything coffee. But once I got over my withdrawals I realized how much I naturally feel better without it!?!?
Aside from green tea or my unicorn blood — I am also going to stay away from anything caffeinated at this point. Ive fallen in love with Teeccino though!!
I’ve also resolved for the next 6 months I’m going to plan out in FULL DETAIL & PREP allllll of my meals eating at least 3-5 vegan meals each week.
You never think it’s possible but ITS TOTALLY POSSIBLE for you too!! The first 5 days were hairy I won’t lie. Not because of what I could or could not eat, but the feelings associated to not eating my emotions, the actual aches from detoxing, lack of energy while my body was releasing years of toxins and the pains of change.
Overall the food is good minus a few choices like seaweed, tempeh, and mashed garbanzo beans….I am full and not hungry throughout most of the day (as long as I go to bed between 9-10 when I start dreaming about what’s in he kitchen I could nibble.)
So Day 11 was the first day I was tip top shape for the entire day! Feeling full of energy and life, clear thinking and patient!
My breakfast is pretty much the same for the next 2 weeks! They give you other options such as Miso soup, avocado and mashed chick peas but like I said….. not my ideal breakfast! Fresh fruit will do me just fine!!! I am in a routine of making myself one and the boys love it too! I read today that fruit in the morning is cleansing and easy to digest for the body!
Tomorrow I need to get to the store for distilled water and more fruit.
Here’s the Skinny on Day 11:
Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!
Take Supplements (Optimize & Detox)
Wait 30 Minutes
Breakfast (fruit bowl above) Try to pick low glycemic and in season organic fruit
Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)
Take Supplements again
Wait 30 min
I don’t know that it’s allowed but I usually end up combining whatever mix of food combos they have set up. For instance today was cucumber tomato salad, 1 cup quinoa, and 1/4 avocado…so I just mixed it all in. It looks messy but tasted really great! Instead of the dressing listed (that was mostly the same ingredients as the greek dressing — I just used what I already had made of that) but here’s the recipe:
Cucumber & Tomato Salad courtesy of the Ultimate Reset
